So great value for money the staff (unlike other bottomless meals that I have had) were constantly checking we were good for drinks and were beyond professional and friendly. A definable credit to this business. The food came out quick and was lovely would recommend to anyone.

Serving staff brilliant, shame about the manager. Very rude. We had been getting 2 for 1 cocktails at our table, went to the bar and was rudely told I needed a wristband, even though we had been getting the same deal without wristband. Charged full price. The lovely waitress at our table told us that wasn’t correct and amended the bill. Been quite a lot of times and never had any issues but won’t be going again.

The courthouse standard of decor was gorgeous and the neon signs saying guilty and not guilty were the perfect photo op. The waitress was lovely and attentive but did not pester as some places do. All staff are smart and presentably dressed and have a great table manner with customers. The cocktails were prepared at the bar in full view with care and were delicious, the courthouse use premium spirits and you could tell as it was the best cocktail I have had. The food was outstanding and very reasonably priced, their was something for everyone and when it came to the table the presentation was top class. we were given time between courses and the food was cooked to perfection, right when we wanted it. There was no long drawn out waits. The atmosphere is perfect as it is a place that can be busy but with the spacing and booths it is not noisy and you really can enjoy your evening with friends. They were very accommodating to myself as a wheelchair user and the facilities were spotless. All in my party agreed we will be going again and me and my fiancee are booked in again for our anniversary. The only thing I would ask for the future is that they consider Halal for at least one meat dish to cater to all.

We were ignored for 10 minutes before we were sat down (with multiple staff members looking at us but walking past). We were sat down in the back corner of the restaurant on a table which had just been chosen as if we were being squeezed in and not as customers that had pre booked in advance, the table was next to a pile of surplus chairs in between us and the fire escape. The people sat two tables away from us weren’t eating and were just drinking and were screaming, shouting and swearing (the whole dining area were disturbed and not happy as there were families there and I had my 8 year old son with me). The staff did not do anything about the table until I asked them (3 times) to which the waitress just went over and had a laugh and a joke with them. The customers carried on swearing and screaming so I then asked if we could be moved and she said this wasn’t doable (the restaurant was half empty). We were not checked on once throughout our meal in case we wanted drinks etc, we had to ask for cutlery and napkins. When we had finished I went to the bar to explain what had happened and then had to repeat it 3 times to 3 different people, the manager in the end was professional and apologised and gave us a 25% discount on our bill which was appreciated. This is a good restaurant if you want to go for drinks and a bit of food (like I have done in the past) but this experience showed me the restaurant is not the best place to take young children.

Staff were so helpful and friendly the only downside was the toilets being out of order and everyone having to use the one disabled toilet.

The only reason I have put the noise was quite elevated was because there was a large group of girls obviously out, out. No one’s fault and I hope they had a great time I just wasn’t expecting it at lunchtime. The food was delicious 😋
